Kenneth Alper, M.D. is an Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Neurology at the New York University School of Medicine. Dr. Alper has studied iboga from the perspective of medical ethnography, working with Howard Lotsof, the originator of the use of iboga in the treatment of substance use disorders, accessing the geographically and clinically diverse “medical subculture” to yield systematic observation on iboga in heroin detoxification, and a quantitative, descriptive overview of the global settings of iboga use. That work continues with a recent study on prospective follow-up of drug use outcomes following detoxification. Dr. Alper edited the only English language scientific text on ibogaine with Stanley Glick and Geoffrey Cordell. From the perspective of neuropharmacology, Dr. Alper’s collaborations have indicated that the mechanism of action is novel and distinct from that of the opioid receptor agonists that are the current conventional clinical standards of pharmacotherapy for opioid use disorder. His collaborations with the New York City Office of Chief Medical Examiner and the NYU Departments of Cardiology at NYU and Capital Medical University in Beijing are widely appreciated in the field of iboga treatment for advancing the effort to develop safer treatment practices.

Excerpt from the 2010 ICEERS Ibogaine Conference held at the Catalan Health Ministry

Tom Brown, a scientist and researcher, discusses the potential benefits of ibogaine to treat opioid dependency. Tom has worked for several years on an outcome study to determine the effectiveness of ibogaine treatment for opioid dependency. This study showed that ibogaine is effective for detoxification, reducing opioid use, and providing long-term improvement in social and family status. The steady and rapid growth of iboga therapy could change the future of standard opioid treatment options.

Dr Gabor Maté is a globally recognized MD, author, and speaker who is considered an expert on a range of topics including substance use disorder, trauma, and the links between stress, disease, and early childhood development.Rather than offering reductive answers to these complex issues, Dr. Maté weaves together scientific research, case histories, and his own insights and experience to present an integrative perspective on the biopsychosocial model that empowers individuals to promote self-healing and approach maladaptive behaviors with compassion and curiosity.

For twelve years Dr. Maté worked in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside with patients challenged by hard-core drug addiction, mental illness and HIV, including at Insite, North America's only legal supervised injection site. With over 20 years of family practice and palliative care experience and extensive knowledge of the latest findings of leading-edge research, Dr. Maté is a sought-after speaker and teacher, regularly addressing health professionals, educators, and lay audiences internationally.

As an author, Dr. Maté has written several bestselling books including the award-winning In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts: Close Encounters with AddictionWhen the Body Says No: The Cost of Hidden Stress; and Scattered Minds: A New Look at the Origins and Healing of Attention Deficit Disorder, and co-authored Hold on to Your Kids.
